Fréjus on the N7 and the A8, or by seaside between Saint Tropez and Cannes.
Former military port, and Roman city, Fréjus looks down on the rich alluvial plains which separate the Estérel from the “Massif des Maures”. Half way between Cannes and Saint Tropez, this city of art and culture constitutes a rich historical and architectural heritage.
And this has been since the presence of Roman legions after the foundation of the city in 49 by Julius Caesar himself, she was then called Forum Julii (Julius’ market ), to the Marine troops who are still today welcome in Fréjus.
The city is strewn with monuments, one of them being one of the biggest amphitheatre of Gaul (Ist or II), the Roman theatre, the golden door (vestige of thermae from the III), the lantern of August (vestige of the old Roman port), the door of the Gauls or the aqueduct which brought water from the Siagnole (of Mons!) over 40kms, the Cocteau chapel (designed by J. Cocteau in 1961 and achieved by E. Dermit in 1965).
